Anxiety/depression
Been through bad time lately with suffering with this. Dark thoughts as well. I know some posters on here suffer with this. Anyone come through the other side of this shit?

Ray Winston ( I think ),

Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt Haig,

Thank you, read in one sitting.

Could relate to his experiences.
Non patronising, good information, Only self help book I have bought, outside of NLP.

Recommend to all those who know someone with anxiety, despite title it is not all about suicide, more so panic, anxiety, depression.

Even if you do not suffer it is a good read to understand your loved ones with depression better.

Its good to talk (type).

Lavender under the pillow at Night is calming and supposed to aid sleep and anxiety.

At the risk of sounding even more Walter Mitty than before, before I met my second wife I was involved in running a Herbal distribution company. My 2 partners swore by St. Johns Wort. But I never gave it much credence because they were always stoned.

It was very popular with a lot of other people, though, so I guess it had a use.

Debs - I also tried St.Johns Wort and didnt really notice any difference, though my brother said he did.

When really down I take a similar thing called 5-HTP and I do believe it helps, well, me anyway.

Debs, I once tried St John's Wort. I never really noticed any benefit but there are people who swear by it.

Debs - have you discussed this with the school? These days extra time is given in exams for a host of reasons. Middle class parents are lining up. (Even George Osborne's son has been granted it).

Re: Anxiety/depression
Yeah she's good thanks. Just a really pressured time for her with exams coming up. It's mainly biology. Not struggling with it academically, just anything to.do.with bodies, hospitals or anatomy makes her really anxious.

Re: Anxiety/depression
Debs, I get anxious about work projects or contracts I'm managing which I drink Peppermint Tea, good for your mental wellbeing apparently along with meditation generally tends to help me.

Hope she's ok.

Re: Anxiety/depression
Has anyone tried any herbal.remedies? Have heard St John's Wort is pretty good.

My 16 year old has been telling me she is getting really anxious over one or two.of her GCSE subjects.

Just wondering if this would be a possible route to go.down to.help keep her from.getting herself tied up.in knots and unable to focus.

Re: Anxiety/depression
For the last week, I've had this constant feeling of dread and trepidation, there's nothing that comes to mind that I am worried about and nothing bad is going on in my life at the minute, it's absolutely cripping me to be honest.

Yesterday was the worst it's been for a good few years, almost went back down that dark hole thankfully the wife noticed and gave me a kick up the arse and made me talk about it.

Stay well, people.

Counter to all the advice given on here, you need to become a secret lemonade drinker*

Re: Anxiety/depression
Though this discussion is admirable and it has encouraged many WHOers to come out and admit that they have in some way been affected by a mental health condition arguing amongst yourselves on petty points is just daft.

Brilliant people who know the brain in such detail still don't know how to solve the conundrum so I doubt we can, despite being called WHO.

Anyway, anyone have any ideas on how to sort this Corona Virus? I've been avoiding lemonade for weeks now.

Re: Anxiety/depression
I have had a few health issues over the last 10 years which got me down a fair bit (to say the least)

My employer has embraced the mental health at work issue recently with all managers having to go on a mental health awareness course (something I was not looking forward to) however I did the course and was surprised to find that every year 1 in 4 people have a mental health issue. This helped me knowing that I was not alone and 25% of the population felt the same way as me. We recently did a Quiz which again I found informative (15 questions) some of the answers were surprising https://www.time-to-change.org.uk/mental-health-quiz

Re: Anxiety/depression
Robin Williams was suffering from Lewy Body Dementia which can have an affect on logical decision making so along with his Parkinson's diagnosis along with his history of depression I can't imagine the turmoil's his mind was going through. Gary Speed - we will never know. One very strange and very sad situation.

Sadly I have known a handful of people who have taken their own lives and with all bar one there was no obvious signs of a struggle with their mental health. Afterwards families and friends always ask if we "should have known" or "done something" but it's an impossible situation really as unless something is glaringly obvious there isn't much you can do.

Re: Anxiety/depression
To say that it makes no sense to top yourself because you won’t see your kids much as this means you won’t see them at all is a ridiculous argument for two reasons:

1. The person committing suicide won’t care that they won’t see them again because they’ll be dead

2. The person committing suicide won’t think in that way anyway because it’s the inability to cope with the here and now and the brief future they can see ahead of them that is the driving force. Because they are mentally ill.

I totally get how people can end up in these situations. Not only is mental illness a total shit, but the law is totally on the side of the mother in any situation involving children, rightly or wrongly. If someone is already feeling hopeless and helpless this can definitely be the last straw.

"yes I'm looking at you Oxsnore."

Whatever floats your boat. I'm not the one chasing people all over the site looking for a response.

Are you man enough to search inside yourself for what you seek? You should have learned by now that you won't find it here.

Re: Anxiety/depression
to which my response was that just makes no sense at all and that

You ask me to stop rolling out the same old lines to people when you keep using the same lines ignorant people say, mate.
